The major changes for 3.14.14 are:
- Mac OS X 10.11 “El Capitan” support
Installer is now compliant with SIP (aka “rootless”) requirements. apcupsd executables are installed into /usr/local/sbin instead of /sbin. Config files and scripts remain in /etc.
NB: There continues to be a known issue with USB UPSes under OS X where the OS power management service occasionally does not relinquish control of the UPS, leaving apcupsd unable to communicate with it. The workaround is to unplug and replug the USB cable after booting the Mac.
- Improvements to MODBUS-USB to improve reliability in the presence of non-MODBUS HID reports and various USB comm faults.
- Other bug fixes and improvements.
Special thanks to Dennis Wurster (@wildeep) for contributing a nicely-equipped Mac Pro to the Apcupsd project. It was instrumental in enabling support for Mac OS X 10.11 “El Capitan”.
